Sex, average people & average people sex

Happy Monday wooooooowie

Thank you to everyone who replied to my last email, I appreciate each and every single one of you. Including this wonderful young gentleman, Nick, who sent in this banger.

Amazing feedback.

The truth is, I probably share more in this email blast than I do with my close friends. I’m not sure why, but it’s somewhat easier this way.

It also seemed to give some people an outlet to share their struggles & wins too. I am grateful to be able to provide a platform in which you feel comfortable to do so. To those; keep pushing. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. Excellence is a habit; it takes time to master.

Which is actually an amazing segway into my topic this week.

AVERAGENESS.

I had someone – let’s call them ‘Mary’ – try and justify their activity levels to me this last week, telling me, ‘I’m still doing more than the average person’

Alright.

Hold up, Mary (marymuppet).

Let me give you some more stats about ‘ the average person’

Taking out under 18 years olds (because we all know, they aren’t people the little savages)

https://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/mf/4364.0.55.001

Australian Stats:

  1. 67% of Australians are overweight or obese
  2. The average person spends 9.4 hours in front of a screen A FKN DAY.
  3. The average person daily step count is under 7500
  4. 1 in 5 people have high blood pressure
  5. 1 in 5 people suffer from mental illness
  6. 50% of the population does not meet the daily fruit intake recommendations
  7. 95% of the adult population does not meet BOTH the daily veggie & fruit intake recommendations. EXCUSE ME.
  8. 15.0% of 18-64 year olds and 17.2% of 65 year olds and over meeting the 2014 Physical Activity Guidelines in 2017-18. WHAT THE FUCK.
  9. 75% of adults do not undertake strength or muscle toning exercise on two or more days of the week.

The average Australian is doing fairly poor in my opinion – and my opinion is backed by statistics.

So, if your aim is to be average, Mary, then go ahead.

Don’t get your steps in

Don’t get your sessions in

Don’t look into your nutritional habits & behavior’s

And for the love of god, don’t even think about following a programmed exercise plan and diet of some sort.

My point is, you shouldn’t be aiming for the fucking average, and you definitely should not be using the average person stats to prop you up for a pat on the back.

In my eyes, you should be more motivated to get away from being ‘average’ than you should be by chasing greatness.

In regards to health, the average isn’t actually average. It’s fucking shithouse! 

In fact, you should be avoiding average like the plague.

Like averageness will harm your life.

Because in reality, it will.

Not just in your health, but in all aspects. /

Imagine finishing up in bed with your partner.

She/you turns to you/partner and says the brutal words, ‘Is that it?’

And you/he turns to you and says, ‘I did better than the average person!’

Is that a good enough answer?

Fucking no. You’d better get yourself ready again bc round 2 I’m coming in hot (is the correct answer).

Settle for average, and you will get average. And – as discussed above, average is fucking shit. Who wants to be average after seeing what your cohort of fellow averages are??

No.

You can do better than that.

We all can – I know this because I know people who are doing better than average.

Not financially (some are, some are not) – but in terms of their time balance, health & fitness, mental health & mental wealth – these people have worked to give themselves the lives they want, not ones they have settled for.

And if they can, then you can fucking do it too.

Stop settling to be average – that shit is not for you.

Literally the only time I will tell you to run – is to run the fuck away from averageness.

If you’re training with me, fuck yeah – you’re on your way! This is a lifestyle change, not just a change of training – lets goooooo.

If you’re not training with me, but you’re still training – you’re doing well! I mean, probably not as well as you could be doing – but you’re getting it in there 😉

If you’re not training at all, now is the time to change. I will help you avoid the shithole that averageness is.
